Don't let my posts on the holdings of television archives fool you...many, MANY broadcasts are lost.

Here is the archival status of the DuMont series mentioned in the list:
The Al Morgan Show - presumed lost
The Alan Dale Show - rumored to have episode(s) exist in private collections
The Dotty Mack Show - presumed lost (ABC version also seems to be missing)
The Drew Pearson Show - presumed lost (status of ABC version is unknown)
The Hazel Scott Show - presumed lost
The Igor Cassni Show - presumed lost
The Ilona Massey Show - presumed lost
The Joan Edwards Show - presumed lost
The Morey Amsterdam Show - Approx 71 episodes survive
The Paul Dixon Show - 1 episode possibly survives
The Roy Doty Show - presumed lost
The Susan Raye Show - presumed lost
The Ted Steele Show - final episode (without Steele) survives)
The Vincent Lopez Show - 1 episode survives
The Wendy Barrie Show - contrary to claim on Wikipedia, this series appears to be lost. The episode on YouTube is a series that aired some years later on a different broadcaster.

I've been digging around for two shows on this list: The Sheriff Bob Dixon Show (I think this is the same as the Paul Dixon Show?), and the Jackie Gleason Show episode #2.18."The Honeymooners: the Lost Episodes". I know that the Sheriff Bob Dixon Show was on DuMont, so I'm assuming that the Paul Dixon show is the same. That might be quite wrong. :D Does anybody know how I could go about finding these shows, if they exist? Also I'm looking for archives of the Garry Moore Show (CBS) from 1950 to 1958. Ken Carson is the fellow I'm researching, and he supposedly appeared on all shows here listed. Terribly hard to find any archived material on him.....even though he was quite popular in his time. Some called him better than Sinatra. ;)
